California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is calling out his wife, Maria Shriver, for apparently violating a state law he signed – holding her cell phone while driving. The TMZ website posted two photographs yesterday showing Shriver holding a phone to her ear while she’s behind the wheel. It says one was snapped Sunday and the other in July. The Web site claimed that this was not the first time California’s first lady was caught chatting on her cell while driving.On his Twitter feed yesterday, Schwarzenegger wrote to TMZ founder Harvey Levin: “Thanks for bringing her violations to my attention. There’s going to be swift action.”
Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear says that by “swift action,” the governor means he’ll ask his wife not to hold the phone while driving. A law that took effect in 2008 requires California drivers to use a handsfree device.
The first lady’s office said it would have no comment.
